Tiger Moth and Tank Day
In a nutshell
- Driving lesson in an armoured personnel carrier
- Flight in the Dragon Rapide
- Buffet lunch in the control tower + much more
The Tiger Moth is a classic 1930s open cockpit biplane, once used as the perfect flying machine to teach Second World War R.A.F. pilots how to fly before they progressed on to more advanced aircrafts such as the Spitfire, the Hurricane and the Lancaster.
Today only a small number of Tiger Moths remain certified to fly, which makes this flying experience a truly rare opportunity to undertake a flight in one of these iconic airplanes.
This superb gift package offers a whole day of adventurous activity including a drive in an armoured personnel carrier and a flight in a Dragon Rapide at Duxford's Imperial War Museum.
Included in this experience are the following:
* Free entry into Imperial War Museum at Duxford
* Half price entry for any accompanying family or friends
